Summary

In this procedure, the provider incises the lower abdomen area to check for any injury to the rectum. He repairs an injury if found and drains any abscess or fluid in the presacral area, or in front of the sacral bone. In addition, he creates a colostomy with the sigmoid colon on the surface of the abdomen, which allows time to heal the rectal injury.
